A cooker fire in an empty flat prompted an emergency call out, firefighters said.

Two fire engines from Bispham and Blackpool were called to a uninhabited flat on Holmfield Road, close to the Queen's Promenade, North Shore, in Blackpool at 5am today.

Crews said the fire involved a faulty electric cooker inside the flat, and disconnected it from the electricity supply to make it safe.
